Investigators say 58-year-old Tony Mosby was driving the rig, known as a box truck, when he was shot. He was found dead in the truck, which had crashed into a guardrail on Interstate 30 near downtown Dallas.
According to the arrest affidavit, the motive for the murder was apparently road rage. Ferrell was allegedly drinking with friends and was angered by a hand gesture from Mosby while passing him on the freeway.MORE NEWS: State Fair Offers Hundreds Of Free Acts, Shows And Exhibits
